    Re: My new Kronos Pro

    Bonzo

    This question came up today with my Kronos dealer who was visiting . I have two 4Points on other tables. The issue is that tHe Kronos is a suspended table and there is some question as to whether the suspension could, (without modification), accept an arm assembly that heavy. I suggest the question be directed to Louis.

    Not so sure about that Mike, the 4Point weighs between 3 & 4 lbs . At the very least it might create a lopsided weight distribution to the far right corner

    And I asked Louis tonight and he said "sure, no problem."

    The designer of the table recommends the black beauty. I love it.

    That IS good news Mike, thanks. I think a number of arms could be serious contenders , the Black Beauty is not without its own issues though cosmetically, I can see people making that choice. The 4Point, Phantom, Vertere , Triplanar and in particular, Helius arms are all serious contenders

    BTW, looking at that 4Point installation using an awkward Heath Robinson baseplate, the only word that comes to mind is "improvised"......

    What is the exposed Pancake Air Cylinder looking thingy for?

    As a Toolmaker, I really enjoy looking at all the top class work to build this table. Congrats!

    Re: My new Kronos Pro

    I ran into Louis at Munich 2019 and he gave me a new “cup” for the black beauty arm. He has another he wants me to try as well that I should be receiving in a couple of weeks. He’s experimenting with different materials in the cup section which the ball from the unipivot arm sits in.



    He also gave me a new record clamp to try. This one is made from a combination of walnut and maple as opposed to the standard metal one.



    The record clamp was immediately noticeable.
